    1. I read, or rather tried to read, this last year, cause it was required for my English class.I couldn't finish it though, it was too confusing for me. The footnotes-- some of them where actually taking up the whole page, mainly because the footnotes has its own story going on. 3 or 4 people were actually "fighting" in the footnotes.

    4. I am always generous to Filipinos writing in English because I want more books from them. I did have a problem with this faux-diary though. I think diaries are boring because they are often so solipsistic, the fact that this is a fake diary is even worse. I have always hated reading footnotes because it breaks up the flow, even of academic papers. This was much worse for a novel; a clever idea but one that ultimate slows down the book's energy. The subject matter was very interesting but I think [...]
